Treasure Island

Paul Gerard Reed


Everything


I leave to you everything….
The sunny days
When joy runs through your veins;
The view from the mountain top
With the breeze on your face;
I leave you the feeling of being loved
And the comfort of family all around;
I leave you sacred places
Where we played,
Where dreams were made;
I leave you Sunday mornings
When the world stops for a moment
And the coastline shimmers in a haze;
The tingling feeling of anticipation
Of another day of freedom;
I leave you happiness
The fragrance of the rose
And the gentle growing of plants;
I leave you dogs and horses and rabbits
And all creatures who let you win their trust
The energy to run and jump
And to dance when you are full of hope;
I leave you great moments
When all of these things reach a peak
And when history is made;
I leave you love
And luck to find a partner
To share all of these things;
I leave you everything.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

When the hours of Day are numbered,
And the voices of the Night
Wake the better soul, that slumbered,
To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
